Dear Clement Avenue School families,
Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! I hope this message finds you refreshed, rejuvenated and ready for a new school year. The staff and I are so excited to begin the year and we look forward to working with our students and families. We will be focused on continuous improvement in teaching and learning and making Clement Avenue the premier K-8 school in Milwaukee.
We will begin our year with an Open House on August 30, 2023. This will provide students and families an opportunity to meet their classroom teacher and drop off supplies, prior to the first day of school. We invite all families to join the staff on Wednesday, from 5:00 PM – 6:30 PM.
5:00 – 6:30
- Families will report to the gymnasium for a kick-off meeting which will include: Title I information, school systems overview, and staff introductions.
- Sign-up for SEC (School Engagement Council), volunteer opportunities and PTO
- Meet and connect with Clement Avenue support staff (Psychologist, School Social Worker, School Nurse)
- Visit your child’s classroom and review expectations for a successful school year.
*For families who are unable to make the event we will provide necessary information in our weekly Parent Newsletter.
We will have Camp Clement this year, and it will begin on the students’ first day of school (September 5, 2023). Ms. Jonas will attend our Open House on August 30, 2023, to answer any questions; as well, she will collect applications and deposits for camp. All outstanding bills must be paid for applications to be accepted. We have limited space in Camp Clement.
If you know of families looking for an amazing school, send them to Clement Avenue! We still have openings. We were recently awarded Silver-level status in Behavior from the Wisconsin RTI Center. We were also named a Green Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education for 2021.
